It is interesting to me how many people in the new age circles give you this new advice on how life really works and how we should apply this new
knowledge to our lives, etc.
However, apparent contradictions pop out in their own attitude.
I know, I know, they are human too...or reptilian as the case may be.
One example is the recent fiasco with davids newsletter.
Here we have books from him, the most recent one for sure, saying how everything is illusion, we create our own realities, money is no issue cause its
fake, etc. etc.
Oh really? You believe this david?
A few people one day woke up with a surprising letter in their inbox from david, rudely criticizing them for not donating money for the receipt of his
He went on about how he needed money to survive, and people basically took his work for granted.
I responded in kind, as I believe others did, that we had no idea he was in such a financial pinch,
and that perhaps a kinder less demanding tone would solicit more donations.
(and after all of his most recent writings saying how its all illusion and how you create your own realites, etc., it was a suprise hearing this from
a man that would have us take him serious.)
The inconsistency isnt as much as a problem, as we are human and still have our fears, etc., despite what we may believe. It more was the shock of
After reading the letter (of which I thought was a prank written by someone else do to the extreme difference in his tone and style), and seeing that
it was from him, it then appeared the true Icke was showing itself.
Somone who is using this as a tool to further their pocket book. Someone who saw the amount of visitors coming, and thought, "if they just gave me
"x" amount of money, I would be bringing in "x" amount.
(making him virtually rich) And when it didnt go through, we saw through the temper the apparent real motiviation behind what he is doing.
Ironically, in the same letter he complained that all but one person who contacted him in regards to the webmaster position (full time) wanted lots of
money, and only one wanted to do it for free.
It appeared as is he expected more people to just volunteer for free?
(I can imagine that people, would say something similar to him, that they need some kind of income to, especially for the demand he was asking from
Inconsistencies, yes...thats human, true motivation, only david knows...(just saying this did not help his PR at all)
